    Code:
    PEC wrapper 2.50
    
    
    Allows current PEC 2.5 to use updated ePSXe functions:
    - visual cursor
    - visual vibration
    - set fixes
    - set framelimit
    
    For ePSXe 152,160,170:
    - pec keys activate immediately on game startup
    - pec now works for all games
    - auto-clear the dynarec table (opcode changes)
    
    
    Instructions:
    1. Install Playstation Emulation Cheater [pec]
    2. Place the 'bin' files to your ePSXe plugin directory where pec is
    3. Choose 'pec_wrapper 2.50' as your GPU plugin
    
    v2 fixes:
    - Allows pec to work for all ePSXe games (dmaChain not required)

    v3 fixes:
    - Automatically clear the dynarec tables to make opcodes cheats work better

    v4 fixes:
    - PCSX-reloaded compatibility

    Need a little help guys. Just got into this emulators stuff and I couldn't find an answer any where online (googled & searched this forum) so I figure I add to this post because the problem is similar to some of the post on this thread.

    Pec installs fine and i directed the gpupec.dll to be written in the epsxe170/plugins folder. When I started the epsxe170 emu and go to config > video, the select/config video menu drop down list saids "psx emulation cheater 2.5" in it and I believe that the pec did install it right and it does detect it; however, when I hit "configure" again nothing is in the drop down list and after that... well no gpu to run the games. Any help would be appreciate it.


    OS: Windows 7 ultimate RTM (I did do compatibility to run w/ xpSp3)

    pec_wrapper v3 is available

    Some codes change the opcode data. Normally this requires a 'ctrl+f' or 'ctrl+r' to flush the game's dynamic recompiler tables.

    v3 will clear them everytime you 'ctrl+g' to change codes. So those opcode changes reflect immediately.

    (Already 20 downloads so I'll make a new post)

    Hopkat told me that v3 could use improving with the dynarec clearing. So I took her advice and now it works more robust.

    PEC_wrapper users please re-download the v3 plugin again. Thank you!

    So what's the difference between PEC and PEC Wrapper 3?

    Doesn't PEC already work for all games?

    the wrapper improves the capability of the gpupec plugin to apply cheats to certain games which uses abnormal DMA access (i think)

    That's the important one :cool:

    ex. Rebel Assault II does everything using normal writes, so PEC can't find the RAM address. I had to manually add a fake DMA to register it.

    There's a few other games I tested which has that problem also.

    Plus, some don't let you turn on cheats until much later in the game. This activates PEC immediately at bootup.

    And manually clearing the dynamic recompiler tables is a little bothersome - turn off codes, clear, turn them back on. So pec_wrapper does it for you for those 1-hit kills. ;)

    Lastly, PEC is too old to support new 1.7.0 features (visual rumble and misc code). Not important but the support is there now. :innocent:

    I just discovered the epsxe Cheater, and tried to install it. And I have no idea what Im doing wrong in installing it. I chose the plugins folder for ePSXe and all that, and when I try to startup the emulator, it keeps saying I havent chosen a GPU Plugin, but theres nothing in the dropdown menu to choose.

    Ive reinstalled the program over and over and have gotten nothing, and I dont even see it on my list of Programs from the Control Panel to uninstall it so I just delete the folders.

    I know nothing about computers really, but I know how to follow directions but even so Im not getting anything done.

    Im about ready to have an aneurysm here, someone help me out

    Download one of these GPU plugins:
    Pete's PSX GPU plugins

    Example:
    Pete's OpenGL2 PSX GPU
    P.E.Op.S./Pete's OpenGL Windows PSX GPU
    P.E.Op.S. Soft GPU (Windows)

    Place the dll in ePSXe/plugins directory.

    Run ePSXe.

    Hit config -> video.
    Select 'Playstation Emulation Cheater 2.5' or 'pec_wrapper 2.50' in box.
    Hit configure.

    Select 'P.E.Op.S Soft Driver' or 'Pete's OpenGL'.
    Hit configure.
    Setup plugin.

    Press ok.
    Run game.

    It works now, the codes activate and all, but the game slows down considerably. Ive been playing Castlevania: Symphony of the Night constantly and its the only game Ive played since I installed the PEC, but when I load my game it crawls, even if I dont pick any codes and just play the game straight.

    I tried adjusting the refreshrate as low as it can go cause my computer isnt the best but it could handle ePSXe just fine before I added the Cheater.

    Quick question, do we really have to input all the values after choosing which codes we want?? I keep sending the cheats to the plugin, but i get this series of windows telling me to pick values and addresses?? I dont know about the rest of you, but im completely clueless when it comes to what items go in what addresses and what quantities... Maybe im doing something wrong in the setup to where its not recognising that the codes have been put in?? The cheater has been put into the plugin folder of ePSXe. Please help..
